Western New Mexico University entered into two more partnerships with Mexican universities on Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017. WNMU signed an agreement outlining protocols between WNMU and Universidad Autónoma de Tamaulipas and signed a memorandum of understanding with Universidad Autónoma de Chiapas.

“These kinds of agreements break down walls between countries,” WNMU President Dr. Joseph Shepard said. “I feel grateful because, with these agreements, part of Mexico will be here and part of New Mexico will be there.

The agreement with Universidad Autónoma de Tamaulipas was made in order to embark on both academic and cultural exchanges that benefit the institutions mutually and allow for multicultural experiences through their association. The exchanges will be made available to undergraduate and graduate students. With a focus on research and academic development between the institutions, the agreement generally calls for cooperation and collaboration among representatives of each.

The understanding between WNMU and Universidad Autónoma de Chiapas was made in order to facilitate understanding and cultural exchange resulting in a strengthening of each other’s educational offerings. The agreement outlines how up to three students, teachers and researchers per semester may, after formal procedures of selection and recommendation, take courses and conduct trainings, internships and research at both institutions.

Western New Mexico University has served the people of the state of New Mexico and its surrounding areas as a comprehensive, regional, rural, public coeducational university since 1893 and serves a student body diverse in age, culture, language and ethnic background.
